Good Morning Everyone! I wanted to let you all know that I have just listed some of these sweet little dolls to my new Etsy page. From here on out, all of my updates should be happening in the new Etsy shop. I think that this will turn out to be much easier for everyone than the updates on the this blog page. I'm posting the link so you can go and check out the new Etsy shop. I will be working on some wonderful new rabbits this week. I can't wait to get them done and posted in the new shop. I will still be sending out email notices of updates, but also plan to post new things here and there. I probably won't bother everyone with an email if I've just posted a single item here and there. If you have a moment, stop by and get familiar with the new shop. I've also updated the SHOP NOW button on The Button Box Facebook page. This button is located just beneath the cover photo. Just click on that button and that will also take you to the new Etsy shop. I will be leaving up this blog page for awhile yet, until everyone knows all about the new Etsy shop... Wishing you all a happy day!

                                           THANK YOU ALL!!!

                                             First up are these sweet, tiny ,adorable rabbit Wee~est rabbits are just 6.5 inches tall and 2.5 inches at their widest ( across their bellies). They're heavily aged and do stand on their own. They each have a sweet wool tail, little twig arms and legs, sweet little whiskers( you'll need to "fluff" them after you receive them). I love the tiny baskets that are wired to their arms and filled with a titch of flax. Each comes with a tiny blue bow tied around their necks. I have not named or numbered these individually as they're all so close to looking the same as one another. I have 10 of these today and will make more at a later date if the demand is there.

These Wee~est rabbits will be signed and dated. There will be a small tag in the bottom of the baskets (inside) with The Button Box 2017 printed on them.

These sweet little guys are $19 each plus shipping.

Hello Everyone!  I will have some nice, new rabbits available for you this evening, Friday March 10th at 7:30 pm eastern time.  On Monday, I plan to have some sweet , small new dolls on my new Etsy page! I'm thinking this will be the last update on this blog page. I'll still keep this up page up though, until everyone is aware of the Etsy shop. Here's a sneak peek of tonight's rabbits..Almost forgot....I wanted to post info on how to order from the update, in case there's some new eyes on tonight's update.. 

The new rabbits will post at 7:30 eastern time, this evening. If you see something you would like to have, just send me an email at . Please be sure to include your zip code, how you wish to pay ( PAYPAL, check, money order. Orders are held until checks clear) and the name of the item. If you have a second choice item,please list that, just in case your first choice is gone.
PLEASE NOTE...Quite often, during an update I get an email or two asking if certain dolls are available, or if anything is left. At the time I answer you, those items may be available, but when you get back to me sometimes 5-30 minutes later, that item, (or all items) are gone. Instead of asking what's left , just tell me for sure that you'd like an item ..if it's available you'll get it. This way you don't miss out!   I won't be taking orders from this update.I have many orders going on right now and more to get to, plus an update for Early Work Mercantile to get ready for and the new Etsy page. However, I do hope to make more of the rabbits shown in the picture below, if there's interest. I'll post them when they're ready, if the demand is there. Until this evening, be happy! Blessings ~ Lynn
